It's a first . . .

First workshops that is at Checkered Cottage in historic downtown Kirkwood, MO. Just one block west of Dewey's Pizza and across the street from Amigos Mexican Restaurant ; ) Checkered Cottage is an adorable paper arts and rubber stamp store located at 135 West Jefferson. I'm so pleased that they wanted three of us from For Keeps Sake to teach classes there. Sue Kelemen, Mary Meyer and I can't wait to begin our new venture.

As a former member of Graphic 45's Design Team, many of my workshops will incorporate Graphic 45 papers and embellishments.

Here are my November workshops:
